The hugely successful Sports Academy is now open for applications for next season’s intake, with an open football session being held in the forthcoming half term holidays for any interested young footballers.
We along with our partners the NPL Football Academy are looking for talented, committed and hardworking current Year 11 & Year 12’s who wish to join a semi-professional academy in the Evo-Stik League when you leave school in 2017 where you will study for a BTEC in Sport qualification (Level 2 or 3), train every day with an UEFA qualified coach and play in the NPL Football Academy League and FA Youth Cup.
The Mickleover Sports ‘Education and Football Academy’ is an alternative to college and is ideal for any 16/17 year old who wants to gain a great education and develop as a footballer at the same time. Now in it’s third year, we have already seen success on and off the field with four students making their first team debuts at just 17/18 years of age and a further three being named on the first team bench.
